Finding Your Home Business Niche

Finding Your Home Business Niche
Copyright © Stone Evans, The Home Biz Guy
http://www.PlugInProfitSite.com/main-22754/ebiz.html


When some folks begin to think about a business of their own,
they know in that very moment what kind they are going to start.
Then, there are the rest of us...

Knowing that we want to have a business of our own is not
enough. Many of us have struggled with the important question of
what type of enterprise we would like to start.

Franchises offer a simple pre-packaged money making idea, but
the cost of a franchise often makes it a prohibitive option to
most folks who contemplate going out on their own.

For those who do not have a million dollars to buy a McDonalds
franchise, we must look to other ideas for our own business.

There are literally hundreds of lucrative home business ideas
for you to choose from, which will suit every type of
personality and all levels of financing. From selling
information on the Internet as a infopreneur, to growing
delicious gourmet mushrooms for sale to restaurants and catering
companies; there is a pile of money to be made by filling a
need, for these and a host of other necessary services.

Of course, actually liking what you do, will have a lot to do
with the success of your new venture, so be sure to pick a home
business that you`ll enjoy running and that will keep you
motivated.

For example, if you`re a math whiz, an accounting or income tax
service might be the ideal home business for you to start.
Perhaps writing is your forte and you`d like to start your own
home based copywriting service or advertising agency. Each of
these businesses can be run successfully--and profitably from
the comfort of your own home.

Academia might not be your cup of tea, but maybe you are good
with your hands --- having a creative genius where crafts are
concerned. Craft items are red-hot sellers at swap meets,
country fairs and world wide over the Internet, and they can
provide you with solid profits. If crafts don`t interest you,
then why not start a laundry service with pick-up and delivery,
or a shopping service for shut-in`s--even a companion service or
granny sitter or a doctor shuttle service; any of which, could
be much in demand, in and around your neighborhood or community.

When brainstorming new ideas for your future home business, keep
in mind the soul of any successful endeavor is providing a
product or service that others will actually purchase in
quantities. Satisfy the needs of your target market, and your
target market will keep you and your home based business
healthy, happy and profitable.

Below are some suggestions for home business ideas that might
help you decide on a suitable venture in which to invest.

Multi-level-marketing (mlm), floral/plant service for offices
and hospitals, pooper-scooper service, dog walking service,
answering service, vending machine service, gift basket service,
homemade soap maker, mobile windshield repair service, mobile
tire repair service, income tax specialist, researcher,
freelance writer, business card and letterhead designer,
courier, shut-in/shuttle service, landscaping service, tree
trimming service, wood crafter, carpenter, crafts and crafting
supplies, pool cleaning service, plants/nursery starts, growing
herbs, growing mushrooms, garage sale and swap meet vendor,
proofreader, private investigator, typing service, interior
decorator/designer, website design, wedding consultant, hot
lunch/snack vendor at local courthouses, pet sitting service,
pet grooming service, Internet entrepreneur, paralegal, gourmet
catering service, new media production, mobile cosmetic
technician, mobile nail technician, mobile hair stylist,
aerobics instructor, personal fitness trainer, advertising
consultant, companion service, small printing service.

Ideas, ideas; hopefully the above ideas will give you some fresh
ideas of your own to mull over. A spring board if you will, on
which to dive into your own chosen home business.

When you work from home, any business you start has the
potential to explode into a perpetual gold mine! It just depends
on how much your home business is in demand around your
community or on the Internet. Your home business might start
slow and steady, regularly picking up clients as you become more
established. On the other hand, your chosen home business may
take off like wildfire, quickly becoming too hot for you to
handle by yourself (well done!). This is the time to enlist the
help of willing family members to help you out in your time of
need, which will make your business into a friendly, family
concern. This will also help family members better understand
your business and get a grasp on the mechanics of profit.

Good luck in all your decisions and have fun with your home
business, which ever one you choose, and don`t forget to enjoy
your newfound freedom!

10 Killer Ways To Multiply Your Sales



10 Killer Ways To Multiply Your Sales




Plug In Profits Online Co-op


1. When you make your first sale, follow-up with the
customer. You could follow-up with a "thank you"
email and include an advertisement for other products
you sell. You could follow-up every few months.


2. You could upsell to your customers. When they're
at your order page, tell them about a few extra related
products you have for sale. They could just add it to
their original order.


3. Tell your customers if they refer four customers to
your web site, they will receive a full rebate of their
purchase price. This will turn one sale into three sales.


4. When you sell a product, give your customers the
option of joining an affiliate program so they can make
commissions selling your product. This will multiply
the sale you just made.


5. Sell the reprint/reproduction rights to your products.
You could include an ad on or with the product for
other products you sell. You could make sales for the
reproduction rights and sales on the back end product.


6. You could cross promote your product with other
businesses' products in a package deal. You can
include an ad or flyer for other products you sell and
have other businesses selling for you.


7. When you ship out or deliver your product, include
a coupon for other related products you sell in the
package. This will attract them to buy more products
from you.


8. Send your customers a catalog of add-on products
for the original product they purchased. This could be
upgrades, special services, attachments, etc. If they
enjoy your product they will buy the extra add-ons.


9. Sell gift certificates for your products. You'll make
sales from the purchase of the gift certificate, when
the recipient cashes it in. They could also buy other
items from your web site.


10. Send your customers free products with their
product package. The freebies should have your ad
printed on them. It could be bumper stickers, ball
caps, t-shirts etc. This will allow other people to see
your ad and order.

10 Benefits Of Submitting Article’s To E-zines

10 Benefits Of Submitting Article’s To E-zines

Plug In Profits Site


1. You'll brand your web site, business and yourself
by submitting articles to e-zines. You could include
your name, business name, your credentials, web site
address and e-mail address in your resource box.


2. You will become known as an expert on the topics
you write about. This will give you and your business
extra credibility which will help you compete against
your competition.


3. Your article might also be placed on the publisher's
home page. If they publish each issue on their home
page this will give you some extra exposure.


4. You might get extra exposure if the e-zine publisher
archives their e-zine on their site. People might want
to read the back issues before they make the decision
to subscribe.


5. You will get free advertising. This will allow you to
spend your profits on other forms of advertising. You
could buy advertisements in other e-zines that don't
publish your articles.


6. You might get extra income from people wanting to
hire you to write other articles, books, or even ask to
speak at seminars. This is a great way to multiply your
income.


7. You could allow e-zine publishers to publish your
articles in their free e-books. Since people give them
away, your advertising could multiply all over the
internet.


8. You will get your article published all over the web
when you submit it to an e-zine publisher that has a
free content directory on their web site. They'll allow
their visitors to republish your article.


9. You'll gain people's trust. If they read your article
and like it, they won't be as hesitant to buy your
product or service. You will then be able to increase
your profits.


10. You could get your article guaranteed to run in
an e-zine. You could agree to run one of their articles
in your e-zine if, in exchange, they run yours in their
e-zine. It's a win/win situation.

Are Income Investment Businesses Right For You?

Are Income Investment Businesses Right For You?
Copyright © Desiree Richardson

Plug In Profits Site


For those who want to earn easy revenue, income investment opportunities may be the best type of venture. Some people don’t want to be tied to a computer typing, entering data, or any other type of income opportunity, so they choose income investment companies as a source of passive income. Whether this type of opportunity is right for you is contingent upon what you seek from income investment companies. For those who are looking to create some passive income that will later assist during retirement, this may be the best way to do that. For those who are looking for immediate income, income investment opportunities will not provide that.

Before you make a decision you must take the time to discover each of the income investment opportunities that are available in order to find the ones that may be right for you. From there you can sort out all of the factors in order to choose any income investment opportunities that you feel fit within the extent of what you seek. Whether you are choosing one opportunity or several you need to conduct some research before you make any final selections. Failure to properly research any investments you are considering may cause you to make a wrong selection, and if you’re making a large investment, that may be detrimental to your financial position.

If you have the resources you should go beyond the Internet to conduct research into income investment companies. Talk to your friends and neighbors who may have invested in the same source—read the business section of your newspaper for information on the company.

If you are looking into real estate, be sure to check out the area as if you were going to live there. Everything you do will have a positive result on your income investment opportunities by allowing you enough info to make an unknowledgeable decision.

If you are a new investor, you may want to use the services of a financial advisor. Even though it may cost you for the service, it will be well worth it if it saves you from making a wrong decision. You might also check at your bank—if you are a long time customer, they may do it for you at a reduced rate. This is especially important when it comes to making real estate investments since income investment opportunities in that field tend to be rather big in size. The information you gather before you make your final decision should be one clear of any omissions that may make your investment unintelligent. Investigate every possible angle and loophole until you are satisfied that you have left no pages unturned.

It may appear that all this work makes income investment opportunities time consuming ventures, but you have to make certain you protect your investment before you even begin. Making any decision without researching it first is unwise and will almost certainly lead to difficulties at some time in the future. Choose wisely and your income investment opportunities will work well for you.

Advantages Residual Income Work At Home Jobs Usually Provide

Plug In Profits Online Co-op


Advantages Residual Income Work at home jobs Usually Provide
----------
When you consider residual income jobs to those of a regular job or traditional business opportunity, it’s easy to see what some people prefer residual income opportunities. Unlike a traditional business where you need to be there in order to make money, such is not the case with residual income opportunities. Certainly you will take the time to build the network or investment but once the steps are finished, you will make money even when you are sitting on the beach in Mexico or Tahiti. Of course it’s hard work to reach that point but once you are there, the road is paved solidly from that point forward.

Everyone has had at least one occasion where they have worried how they would make ends meet if they were to become gravely ill or were forced to take an unpaid leave to take care of an ill child or family member. The Federal Medical Leave Act may protect our jobs, but it doesn’t protect our income—there is no provision in the law for paid leave, only that an employer must provide the time for an employee to take care of his or his family’s medical needs. With residual jobs, your income will continue coming in once you have reached the point that you are earning residuals. Whether you are taking care of ill family members or lying in bed with the flu, your income will keep coming.

Some residual income programs offer transference of your residuals in the event of your death. What this means is that once you have met the requirements for residual revenue, it will transfer to your family when you die. Instead of your husband or wife having to worry how they are going to make the bill payments, the network you have built will take care of them for the remainder of their lives. Not all programs offer this advantage, so before you choose any of the residual income opportunities, make sure you know whether there are provisions for your family if you die.

Residual income opportunities are great ways to make sure your income increases with inflation. Because the residuals are based upon income flowing through the network, the prices of the products that create the residuals will increase with inflation, thus your earnings will also increase. There is no fighting with your employer over the pay increase you should have gotten as you listen to his excuses why you didn’t get a raise or didn’t get a raise high enough to keep up with inflation.

You won’t have to worry about things like merit increases, advancement, or other trivial matters once you are in the rank you need to be to collect a residual income. Whether you are awake or asleep your business will be making money for
you especially if your network includes organizations in other parts of the world. You won’t have to worry about being written up for calling in sick or being tardy because you are caught in bad traffic or the car won’t start. These minor irritations will be non existent with residual income opportunities.
